AC Milan have signed former AS Roma goalkeeper Antonio Mirante until the end of the season. The 38 year old will compete with Ciprian Tatarusanu as our starting keeper Mike Maignan has been ruled out for the remainder of 2021 following his wrist surgery. Milan are also missing the third choice keeper Alessandro Plizzari to injury hence the move was key.

MilanLive.it are reporting that Mirante will be added to the UEFA Champions League squad for the Rossoneri for the remaining group stage matches. This will be important as Stefano Pioli will need good options for the must win games coming up against FC Porto to have any hope of getting out of the group.

According to Sempre Milan, “UEFA regulations state that if a club cannot include at least two goalkeepers in their A-list due to long injuries or illnesses (30 days or more), then that club can temporarily replace them at any time of the season.”
